About Sierra Mac River Trips
Sierra Mac specializes in Tuolumne River Rafting, Merced River Rafting and Yosemite Rafting Trips. We were first the outfitter on the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers and the pioneer in opening Class V Cherry Creek to commercial rafting. Founded in 1965, Sierra Mac is a locally based, family-owned business. We are located just 15 miles outside Yosemite's northwest entrance on Highway 120, perched above the Tuolumne River canyon. Our experienced guides are privileged to host your Yosemite rafting trip. Escape the crowds and connect with yourself, your friends, and the rivers of Yosemite.

Great trip down the Tuolumne river with Sierra Mac! Loved our guides and the food was outstanding! I would have gone just for the after dinner musical performance. These are some talented guides! This river had non-stop action. Super fun, white water experience! We'll definitely book with them again next season.

What a fantastic outfitter and trip! Safety was first and foremost but ensuring we had an exciting experience was a close second. Eric and Maggy were awesome and worked so hard to make sure we had a memorable time. From the reservation process to returning to their office after 2 days on The Toulumne, the whole experience was seamless. No need to look any further when booking a rivertrip. Sierra Mac ALL THE WAY!

I’ve rafted all over the the United States and have had great experiences with every outfitter I’ve used. With that being said, Sierra Mac is the gold standard in White Water expeditions. I found them from their amazing YouTube videos of Cherry Creek. From there I contacted Marty and booked our trip which solidified I made the right decision on which outfitter to use. I later had interaction with Tom who was awesome to deal with as well and ended up being our guide. Sierra Mac facility was set up great and everything was handled professionally from getting our gear to the pre-trip physical tests. Tom and the gang impressed at every turn and gave my son and I the best experience I’ve ever had on a river. Cherry Creek was as advertised and Sierra Mac made the difference. If Challenging white water is your thing. Do yourself a favor and call Marty and Tom. You won’t regret it!

It would take more space than allowed here to express the amount of fun we had on this trip! Our guides Eric and David went above and beyond to provide our family with an EPIC two day adventure on the Tuolumne, one we will never forget! We treated to scrumptious meals, fun and games, fantastic camping and meal locales (especially the grotto!), knowledge of the river and boating in general and most importantly an exciting yet safe trip down the river. One could tell Eric and David truly loved what they do, Marty answered every question we had before our trip and welcomed us back afterwards and Deena got us to and from the river with stories and a smile on her face. I cannot recommend the crew at Sierra Mac enough! It’s tough to find true bonding experiences for parents and their teens these days but this trip did it! Our kids (14&16y.o.) had a BLAST and still have not stopped talking about it. Thanks guys!!

Want the ride of your life? This one was at the top of our list. Better than Disneyland! Marti [owner] and Corey ~ our guide made sure that safety was number one on the list. Can't even begin to tell you how much fun the trip was down the Tuolumne River. The lunch was first class as well. Gourmet everything! If you are a meat lover or a Vegan, they had it all. Corey was very knowledgeable about the rapids and history of the canyon. There wasn't a moment that I didn't feel safe and secure in riding the rapids. Surfing one of the rapids was also a blast. Very creative indeed! If I could give you guys a grade, it would definitely be an A++ . Thank you Marti and Corey for an EPIC experience that my family and I will never forget. If I'm ever around the area again, you can bet that we are going again. SO MUCH FUN!
